IHM Client Fahlesson Signs With Vännäs

by Chris White

International Hockey Management is proud to announce that client, Mattias Fahlesson, has signed with Vännäs HC in Sweden's HockeyEttan (Division 1). The 6’3, 205-pound left shot center is from Umeå, Sweden. Fahlesson was born February 13, 2000, and spent last season in HockeyEttan with Bodens HF. Boden qualified for AllEttan Norra, leading the group in points. 

Fahlesson had a difficult season, as he endured injury problems, last year. He was limited to just 13 Games Played, scoring 2 Goals. This will be Fahlesson’s second go-around with Vännäs HC, who brought him in on loan in 2019-2020. Fahlesson played 11 Games for the club, recording 2G-2A-4PTS. The big center finished second in scoring for IF Björklöven, with a stat line of 23GP-12G-18A-30PTS, that season. The longtime Björklöven product was a point-per-game, or better, player at the J18 and J20 levels. Fahlesson compiled a two-year stat line of 27GP-11G-14A-23PTS at the J18 Allsvenskan level. In 2015-2016, Fahlesson competed for Västerbotten at the famed Swedish TV-pucken showcase tournament, for the country’s top 15 year old players. Fahlesson also wore an “A” for his club. In 2019, he made his debut in Sweden’s second-highest level, Allsvenskan, with his home club of IF Björklöven.

International Hockey Management President, Chris White, commented,

Mattias had a great opportunity to be a member of a top club, last year, which helped in his development as a young pro. Now, he has a new chance to show his ability to produce and be featured in a more prominent role. It is a natural step for a player of his age, and we are looking forward to seeing him not only healthy, but showing his talent for a hungry Vännäs club.

Vännäs HC Sports Director and Head Coach, Jesper Jäger, noted, 

Mattias is a skilled, hardworking forward. He is a player who masters the game all over the ice.
He is very positive, humble, and always wants to develop. Mattias will work hard every day and will be a perfect addition to our group, which already features a strong forward group.
